    Decoupling kinematics and mechanics reveals coding properties of trigeminal ganglion neurons in the rat vibrissal system

    Nicholas E Bush et al.
    Primary sensory neurons of the rat whisker system encode contact with objects in terms of the forces exerted on whiskers, rather than the induced whisker movements.

    The cerebellum linearly encodes whisker position during voluntary movement

    Susu Chen et al.
    Cerebellar Purkinje cells represent movements via bidirectional linear changes in spike rate, and activity from single cells is sufficient to reconstruct kinematic changes during bouts of free whisking.

    Peripheral optogenetic stimulation induces whisker movement and sensory perception in head-fixed mice

    Sunmee Park et al.
    Light can be used to trigger the contraction of facial muscles and movement of the whiskers in transgenic mice, aiding the study of active sensation.

    Feedforward motor information enhances somatosensory responses and sharpens angular tuning of rat S1 barrel cortex neurons

    Mohamed Khateb et al.
    Primary motor cortex afferents supra-linearly amplify the responses and sharpen angular tuning of neurons in the S1 barrel cortex.

    Optogenetic feedback control of neural activity

    Jonathan P Newman et al.
    The 'Optoclamp' is a feedback control technology that enables precise, continuously updated, closed-loop optical control of neural firing both in vitro and in vivo.

    Dye-enhanced visualization of rat whiskers for behavioral studies

    Jacopo Rigosa et al.
    A simple fluorescent dye method allows visualization of whiskers, facilitating studies of rodent tactile behavior.

    Coding of whisker motion across the mouse face

    Kyle S Severson et al.
    Electrophysiology and information theory show that diverse classes of mechanoreceptors in the face inform the mouse brain about whisking.

    Layer 6 ensembles can selectively regulate the behavioral impact and layer-specific representation of sensory deviants

    Jakob Voigts et al.
    Changing which layer 6 neurons are active during sensory tasks disrupts the detection and encoding of changes, but still allows integration of sensory information in the absence of changes.

    Circuit organization of the excitatory sensorimotor loop through hand/forelimb S1 and M1

    Naoki Yamawaki et al.
    Cell-type-specific circuit analysis reveals a highly polysynaptic pattern of excitatory feedforward connections along the somatosensory-to-motor loop, from cuneate via VPL thalamus to S1 and M1 cortex and corticospinal neurons.

    A cross-modality enhancement of defensive flight via parvalbumin neurons in zona incerta

    Xiyue Wang et al.
    Parvalbumin positive GABAergic neurons in the ventral zona incerta receive input from somatosensory cortex and enhance sound-induced flight behavior, which underlies a cross-modality facilitation of defensive behavior by somatosensory input.
